    There's a prominent dwarf missing in East point. I don't want to just conclusions here but foul play seems likely. He is in a wheelchair and doesn't seem tettibly mobile. I hope he's found unharmed.

    Anyone ever hiked(?) in East Palisades? My buddy's family is in town and they were going to go to Sweetwater Creek or East Palisades. He was calling it "some bamboo hike/walk that his family found online."

    Then they were all going to get BBQ, and were choosing between Fat Matt's and Fox Bros. Told him to also look into Rodney Scott's, but any of the 3 are good.

    Do the Palisades and then get Heirloom Market

    Palisades is a great, short route. I love Sweetwater, but it takes a bit to get out there. Only reason to go is if youre wanting to float in creek.

    Almost mentioned Heirloom, but have a feeling they want to sit down -- will mentioned it now Fran Tarkenton . The Rodney Scott ribs I had last week may have been the best ribs I've ever had though. That shit was delicious.

    Both are fun, but I prefer Sweetwater. While it’s crowded, 95% of the people stay on the main trails and once you get off those I rarely see more than a few other people. Was actually out there the other weekend and basically had the place to myself.

    Cisco Systems Inc. may be considering Georgia for a new headquarters as the cost of living in Silicon Valley starts to erode its cache as a premiere tech market.

    Last year, Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO) selected Midtown to build a 700-job innovation center, a major win for Atlanta's technology industry. But Georgia Department of Economic Development documents reveal an even bigger expansion could be in the works.

    Cisco innovation center, a "potential headquarters play in the future" could happen, according to a July 2021 summary of the 700-job project obtained by Atlanta Business Chronicle. This document outlines known attributes about a company's project before it chooses a location, like its space needs or the other states the company is considering.

    It is unclear whether the deal is still active or if Cisco would relocate from Silicon Valley completely or establish Atlanta as a second headquarters. Cisco has not publicly disclosed interest in further expansion in Atlanta and did not respond to request for comment. The state department of economic development declined to comment.

    How Cisco could boost Atlanta's tech industry
    Landing Cisco could elevate Atlanta’s position in the ranking of major markets for technology companies. The San Jose, California-based technology conglomerate is ranked No. 74 on the Fortune 500 list. Already, Cisco plans to grow its local workforce to 1,700 once the company completes its $41 million innovation center. Average wages at the center are $118,000.

    Atlanta landed both Microsoft Corp.'s and Google's East Coast hubs last year. Microsoft (NYSE: MSFT) has a 1,500-person office in Midtown and is planning a 90-acre campus that could create tens of thousands of jobs. Google is in a 19-story Midtown tower.

    Scoring big names in tech often attract more companies into the mix and bolster the city's startup ecosystem. Amazon.com Inc. (NYSE: AMZN), Cash App, Nike and Airbnb (Nasdaq: ABNB) have all announced major Atlanta expansions in the past year.

    Cisco choosing Atlanta for a relocation or a second headquarters is not outside of the realm of possibility. The company’s leadership already has ties to the state. CEO Chuck Robbins and Chief Financial Officer Scott Herren are both Georgia Tech graduates. Herren bought a home in Atlanta in October of last year, according to state property deeds. Cisco’s Senior Vice President of Americas Rachel Barger is also based in Atlanta.


    Atlanta's cost-of-living advantage
    Atlanta's relatively low cost of living and diversity of people and industries have become distinct advantages for the city's tech growth. Across the nation, tech workers are moving out of major hubs, namely San Francisco, Boston and Chicago, according to LinkedIn data. Sun Belt cities are capturing the migration.

    Documents detailing Cisco’s interest in Georgia were made available to the public one month after its former CEO and Chairman John Chambers said he would rather launch a startup in Atlanta and Austin, Texas, over Silicon Valley due to the lower costs of living.

    The average rent for a 1-bedroom apartment in San Jose, California is $2,480, whereas the average is $1,710 in Atlanta, according to a national rent report from Zumper. But Atlanta's reputation of affordability is starting to change — apartment rents rose by 20.4% within the last year, according to a first quarter report from CBRE.

    “I want Silicon Valley to win. Don't misunderstand me,” Chambers said in May. “I want us to be successful here, but I also want to send a very direct message. If we don't disrupt ourselves, we are going to get disrupted. And right now it's not looking good.”


    Chambers is not the only leader in Silicon Valley detracted by its high costs of living and doing business. Perhaps the splashiest example of this is CEO Elon Musk relocating the corporate headquarters of Tesla Motors to Austin, Texas late last year.

    Did the Americano tonight and ordered most of the menu.

    Steak was great but there are great steaks all over Atlanta. The bolognese was unbelievable. Probably the best pasta dish I've ever had. Scott Conant was there and super nice. Spoke to every table.
